SAN FRANCISCO — At least eight strains of the coronavirus are making their way around the globe, creating a trail of death and disease that scientists are tracking by their genetic footprints.

Discharged coronavirus patient leaves heartwarming message for doctors

A discharged coronavirus patient in Cleveland left an inspiring message for medical staffers after being nursed back to good health.

On Tuesday, the Cleveland Clinic posted an image to Instagram that showed a very powerful message left by a now-discharged coronavirus patient. According to the post, doctors responsible for treating the patient, who has not been publicly identified, often wrote messages to the sick person on a window. The patient decided to leave a powerful message on the same window, calling it “the most impactful window in my life.”

“On days when I watched you work hard to keep me and others alive, unable to thank you for the time that you poured into me — and although I will probably never get the chance to pour that same love and support into you, I want you to know that I think you all are rockstars,” the patient wrote in black marker. “I watched some of you have good nights and some bad nights but what was consistent every night was that you care for people.”
